December 7, 1941 is a date that will forever be etched in stone in America’s history. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor not only changed the course of World War II, but changed the course of history. In this episode, we’re making our first pilgrimage to a site that is highly visited by people around the world. There are some things that will be familiar and a few that many people don’t see when they visit Pearl Harbor.
